More About This Book

Overview

Lydia Cacho is a symbol of courageous journalism. She has been defying the tradition of impunity for some years now, and demonstrating that communication media may not be so. This new book culminates her years of work on denouncing the systematic sexual violations of children and women, and the prostitution of children and women that constitutes the most lucrative form of slavery in our time, although it's not acknowledged that way. And Lydia goes beyond the frontiers of Mexico. Disguised with different attires, she travels from the Mexican undergrounds of the Merced market up to the Japanese night centers and brothels, going by many other knots of the immense spider's web of the Mafiosi, businessmen, policemen, judges and politicians that manipulate the global business. These are not neutral pages. Lydia listens, for them to be listened, to the voices of the victims, the broken lives, and accuses those who exercise the most abject form of property right, men who own women, adults who own children: those super machos manifest their despicable power by humiliating the weakest. Eduardo Galeano. Lydia Cacho es un símbolo del periodismo valiente. Ella lleva ya unos cuantos años desafiando la tradición de impunidad y demostrando que los medios de comunicación pueden no ser miedos de comunicación. Este nuevo libro culmina sus años de trabajo en la denuncia de las sistemáticas violaciones sexuales de niños y mujeres, y de la prostitución de niños y mujeres que constituye la más lucrativa esclavitud de nuestro tiempo, aunque no se llame así. Y Lydia llega más allá de las fronteras de México. Ataviada con disfraces diversos, viaja desde los bajos fondos mexicanos de la Merced hasta los centros nocturnos y los prostíbulos de Japón, pasando por muchos otros nudos de la inmensa telaraña de mafiosos, empresarios, policías, jueces y políticos que manejan el negocio en el mundo.
